During conversion of our command specs from HTML to XHTML ready for import into an XML CMS (as legacy documents) we are using Tidy. Our thanks to all who work here!
The problem is that our command specs rely heavily on   characters to format the commands as follows:
<A HREF="../../intrpt.htm" TARGET="_top">INTRODUCE_PART</A>(
Where INTRODUCE_PARTITION is the command and the following lines are the options.
Why does Tidy remove these spaces? I studied the XML and XHTML specifications to see if and   were deprecated in XHTML but couldn't find anything.
Is it a bug or a feature? :-)
